In this workshop, I will lead the participants through sculpting an approximately 10” tall animal out of solid clay which will then be hollowed out. I prefer this technique for pieces of this size because of the freedom of movement the solid clay provides. Once the animal is built solid, we will then cut it into a few pieces, hollow it out, then reassemble and repair the cut lines. From there we will go over adding details like eyes, teeth and a few different ways to make fur texture.
